Transcript of Andy Goldsworthy
A cairn in Austrailia
Goldsworthy only uses materials that he finds on site to create his sculptures
Tide coming in over stacked stones
Goldsworthy made stone stacking popular.
You can even find prints like the one above at Ikea.

Goldsworthy's artwork was everchanging as the tides came in,
as leaves decayed, as moss grew on stone.
A sudden breeze could cause pieces to fall apart in the
middle of an installation. Since they are not held together with
glues or adhesives, they are quite delicate.

EPHEMERAL - Lasting for a very short time
Natural elements turn brown, dry out, blow and wash away. Rot and decay are as much a
part of the art as the original installation. Goldsworthy documents his art throughout
the installation process and even periodically in the future to capture the decay.
Green Horn - Sweet Chestnut Leaves
Goldsworthy wanted his art to look like nature could ALMOST have created it
